Expeditions are probably the best learning environment for young people. Being pushed physically and mentally means students are taken out of their comfort zones, and that’s where the magic happens.
We don’t see our expeditions as a ‘once in a lifetime adventure’. We’re aiming for something much more long term. Our goal is to ignite a life-long passion for adventure, a yearning for global learning and for students to be able to make educated decisions about risk-benefit and long term global sustainability. After all, we’re educating the next generation of travellers, teachers, nurses, engineers, politicians and potentially world leaders. It’s important we open their eyes to the world – the good and the bad.
Feedback from both students and parents tells us again and again that our expeditions transform young people’s perspectives on world politics, religion, history and the importance of the global community:
“My whole outlook on life has changed from this trip, because people here have very little and are still happy, vs England where people aren’t as happy even with twice as more.” Student - Ghana Expedition 2019
“I feel so much more independent! Travel can impact your life so directly it’s amazing. Go in with an open mind and soak up EVERYTHING! I also didn’t bring my phone and it was such a good choice.'' Student - China Educational Journey 2019
